The Mississippi Network

If you look closely, the magnolia flower has a small, but mighty touch of gold at the center. With nearly 150 DU alumni and friends, this group is small, but mighty. The Mississippi Network hosts a wide variety of events for new graduates and seasoned professionals alike through baseball outings, watch parties, and annual Day of Service. The Mississippi Network is eager to connect with you and is open to alumni, parents, current students, and friends of DU. Connect with your Network Leaders below or reach out to your staff liaison to learn how to get more connected. We can’t wait to hear from you! 


Featured Volunteer Leaders

Meet Colby Mitchell

I am the COO for three dental clinics throughout Mississippi and a Business Consultant for small companies that have found their niche, but don’t quite know how to move their business forward. I am passionate about building up these entrepreneurs, because if they succeed, they create jobs, build communities and culture, and ultimately support individuals and families. I am a Catholic, husband, and father of two little boys. If you’re interested in what I do, whether you’re a professional looking for help or a student at DU trying to figure things out, I am happy to help! I graduated from the Daniels College of Business with a MS in Marketing in 2018. I look forward to connecting!
